Morris-Shea recently installed deep foundation piles for the construction of the new EGGER Wood Products plant in Linwood, N.C. The team redesigned the initial foundation from H-piles to Morris-Shea’s DeWaal Drilled Displacement Pile System.

DeWaal Piles are a drilled, full displacement, cast-in-place concrete pile installed by fixed mast drill rigs capable of applying high rotational torque and crowd forces to the DeWaal tool. The Morris-Shea deep foundation system provides support for high load bearing areas in the plant where soil conditions include clayey sand above partially weathered rock.

The benefit is it decreased material expenses and improved project scheduling at the new particle board manufacturing facility. The system provided greater load strength in comparison to the initial driven H-pile design and minimized noise and vibration concerns.
